CSNbbs 101 for the newbies
Respect the power of Jim Donnan ... he knows kung fu.

Read up on why carrots, cogs, and Marshall swimmers are culturally important here: http://csnbbs.com/showthread.php?tid=567399

The site has MANY active conference and team boards. Use "Active Board Finder" in the conferences menu to browse them.

The AUP is like the US Constitution for this site ... a set of minimal site-wide rules. We try to keep things laid back. Keeping with the federalism model ... conference and team boards may operate more loose or tightly based one what they're used to. It is to be expected that if you're visiting other folks boards your behavior will be more heavily monitored than if you are posting on your own.

Follow us on social media .. links are in the top left under "Collegiate Sports Nation".

Q: Speaking of that menu ... what is that pressbox and other stuff?
A: We're going to have our own news/op-ed/stats websites in the future. Stay tuned!

Q: Where does the buck stop?
A: Here.

Q: What's the good word?
A: To hell with Georgia. Every day. Every way.

Q: How to I change my avatar and stuff? Where is the UserCP?
A: Click your name top right.

Q: I don't like these ads. YOU SUCK!
A: That is not a question. Also, you can change posts per page to be up to 50 in your UserCP. Barring that, you can pay a dirt cheap amount of dough (less than $1.50/mo) to remove all the ads. See premium under your name top right.

Q: Why have all these stupid ads anyway?
A: The site is free. It pays the bills. And not just hosting and hardware ... I'm trying to make this what I do for a living. How many message boards do you know with a dedicated support person? Answer: 1 ... this one.

Q: I have heard hushed whispers that there is a board here with hot redheads on it.
A: Guess you'll have to look around some when your post count reaches 100. It might exist. It might not. I could tell you ... but then I'd have to kill you. And the first rule of fight club is you don't talk about fight club. I've said too much already ... moving on.

Q: Are there any general/OT type boards?
A: The Lounge (see up top in nav). There is an active pro sports and general and political board there. The Spin Room on the lounge is moderated wild west style. You have been warned.

Q: What are these everywhere tags that GTS talks about?
A: http://csnbbs.com/showthread.php?tid=315460

Q: What the hell is a skunkworks?
A: http://csnbbs.com/misc.php?page=skunkworks ... it comes with some nice perks.

CLEARLY nobody has read the linked thread on COGS, Carrots, and Marshall swimmers yet ... or we'd have laughter CPR requests in here already.

Got a few questions of giddy people wanting to know if they could compare how active the JMU board here is compared to the others on the site.

Why yes ... the vitality page in features in the nav ... or for the lazy: http://vitality.csnbbs.com/

CP -> Edit profile. Same place where you put who you root for. Just a bit further down the page

Just spent an hour reading that thread - hilarious (and kinda sick) - but I like.

I read the marshall swimmer thread. I'll have to find it and provide a link. It's a very funny read and also sad.

http://csnbbs.com/showthread.php?tid=567399

Enjoy.

JMU has been the 3rd most active board in the last 24 hours.

GTS (or anyone else that may know),
Does this board have the capability of being able to hover over a thread title and displaying a preview of the contents of the first post, or is that a personal setting somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Why do I sometimes get "undefined" rather than the message I typed when I post a response?

You must have some browser issues ... javascript blockers? an ancient browser?

Ramblin' wreck, do you have the ability to hide quoted posts from ignored users? The ignore function works well to hide the mouth breathers, but when they are quoted their posts still pollute the good discussion.

Negative. The board doesn't support it, and it would be quite an invasive surgery to attempt to fix for several very boring technical reasons.
